Got up later than planned and took my time getting ready, and left for Tianfu Square at about 10.30am. I was going to go to the Chengdu Museum, but the queue looked quite long, and I didn’t want to waste my short time in it, so I returned to the Science Museum and spent nearly two hours there. They have some really great exhibits, and fun ideas. It is a shame there are so many that are not working or “under maintenance”.
Taking a somewhat leisurely walk back to the hotel I took a route underground, which turned out to be a huge shopping complex underneath the square. I hadn’t realised that there was such busyness going on just a few metres below me! I even found a C&A store; I haven’t seen one in England for years!
